and the economy is set to be the topic of wednesday's presidential debate and mitt romney is going to try it tout his record at bain capital for a reason to pick him. the democrats are trying to peck up people who used to work bain capital, and a part of the election season, he was featured on a conference call with the now infamous, joe southic, a former employer of a bain company that later on claimed that mitt romney indirectly killed his wife and mitt romney deputy campaign manager stephanie cutter claemd not to remember and we also heard from mr. foster at the democrat national convention earlier this month. >> bain took over the bill, they loaded it up with millions in debt and within months, they used some of that money to millions, within a decade the debt kept growing and was so large the company was forced into bankruptcy. . >> as it turns out, mr. foster was actually regional director for the steel workers union who worked with gst steel, but not at gst steel and as there are two sides to every story. one former executive at gst steel says that what really happened when bain capital ca
to predictions -- i think this will come up in the debate. not because mitt romney will bring it up, but because he will be asked about it by one of the moderators. but the romney campaign has shown no signs of pulling back on this. i got a mail -- i live in virginia -- i got a mail at my house for my daughter, who registered to vote a week ago. it repeated all the lines in the welfare at. i think the romney campaign has found a message that it once to -- wants to keep hitting. i think that will come up in the debate. we will hear from obama. initially, we saw this in the polls, this has resonated, their traditional scare seniors about medicare tactics. that has been working really well. so i think obama will bring that up. one thing we will hear is the phrase that romney would end medicare's guarantee, which is a phrase the democrats have liked to use recently. we have raided that half-true for two reasons. one, it is not like it really has a guarantee now. congress can change the medicare benefits any time it wants to. it frequently has. now, romney would change the structure in which people w
than that -- more of that in the debates. president obama and governor romney have different views about where to take this country internationally. host: where you expecting from the speech by the iranian leader today? guest: mach mod ahmadinejad -- mahmoud ahmadinejad is a fool. er.is a israel pahat denies the holocaust. he lost most of his power. he is not the most significant leader in iran. i would expect a lot of lies about the united states. iran has very low support. they have support from hezbollah and the syrian government. most countries want nothing to do with the iranians. they have been violating their commitments on their nuclear enrichment programs. it is a program on the defensive. president obama has been doing a good job of pushing the iranians into a corner and we should continue that policy matter who wins the election and prevent them from getting a nuclear weapon. host: susan from new york. caller: good morning. their comments are very great. i have two questions, one regarding libya. one is regarding libya. the you think the al qaeda attacks and on the guy t
and president ahmadinejad. >>> not to be outdone in the foreign policy debate, mitt romney took the stage, too. he was at the clinton global initiative earlier this morning. former president clinton introduced him. he took a swipe at the obama administration by noting the current state of fairs overseas. >> syria has witnessed the killing of tens of thousands of people. the president of egypt is a member of the muslim brotherhood. the ambassador to libya was killed in a terrorist attack. iran is moving toward flunuclea weapons capabilities. we feel like we're at the mercy of events rather than starting events. >> mr. romney reiterated that -- >>> it's the call everyone is talk about. packers versus seahawks. should the players union pull the members off the field to support the nfl referees? i'm barack obama and i approve this message. romney: "is time to stand up to the cheaters" vo: tough on china? not mitt romney. when a flood of chinese tires threatened a thousand american jobs... it was president obama who stood up to china and protected american workers. mitt romney attacked obama's deci
debate sessions with chris van holland and campaigned yesterday in the state of virginia, keeping romney's comments about the 47% in his line of attack. >> he attacks the 47% of the american people who he says paid no federal taxes. and he attacks, he, romney, attacking someone on taxes? woah. that's like me attacking someone for being passionate in politics. >> also yesterday here in new york city, president obama addressed the united nations. the general assembly there. the president strongly condemning the anti-islamic video that some say caused the unrest in the middle east, but he also says it did not justify the attack on the united states embassy. >> i know there are some who ask why don't we just ban such a video. and the answer is enshrined in our laws. our constitution protects the right to practice free speech. i accept that people are going to call me awful things every day. and i will always defend their right to do so. and we must agree, there is no speech that justifies mindless violence. >> in the last couple of weeks, he pointed out those are probably not the result of a
much debate between the republican candidate mitt romney and president obama -- we will open up the debate and expand the debate as we so often do on "democracy now, "to a third party candidates. we will be in denver, to and we will have third-party candidates responding to the same questions being put to mitt romney and president obama. we will broadcast democracy now.org and on radio as well. you raised the issue of the critical vote as we traveled through pennsylvania. a whole issue of voter suppression and having been in charlotte, a great civil-rights city, where the students from the historical black college in 1960 set up a lunch counter in to grant them and yet, what do we see today? state after state, efforts to suppress voting rights instead of expanding them. not enough people vote in this country. in pennsylvania, there is legislation now on the books that could disenfranchise between 750,000-1 million people. president obama won by 600,000 boats in pennsylvania last time. this really does determine the election. i don't care who you are for. this will determine the
point of the debate. it's entirely possible that romney will run as any republican challenger ever. pulling on the whites bush '88 come all 56 to 61% of whites range. romani could come right in that range and lose, and i think that is down to -- it should precipitate a conversation in the party. this is the last time anyone will try to do this that is entirely on the back. it's unrealistic when 62 or 63, but the existing collision is so dependent on the community that are uneasy with the change that they are just paralyzed in the intellectual understanding the have to reach out to the hispanics and difficulty they are fighting it in degrees note here at the end. the republican platform in addition to everything else it says about immigration, so any straight defeat does state that provides should be barred from all federal higher education money which means under the republican platform every kid in texas couldn't get a pell grant. so, that is sort of what they are grappling with, versus if you talk to karl rove awarded gillespie and the understanding that we have ways to reach out
's not good at that. he's great at giving big speeches but i think romney can do very well over three debates. >> he's got -- you know, the president has, i think, kind of a contempt for sound bites. >> that's a great way to put it. >> what i would say back to that is "mr. gorbachev," tear down this wall is a sound bite. sometimes big ideas have to be torn down into sound bites. >> we have not. jfk in his inaugural speech. sound bites. >> that's just another way of saying clarity of thought. i think we're still in a place where if president obama had to build his library in the next, you know, x number of years, what would you -- is there a short phrase you could put on the wall? lots of paragraphs, and that's right. but there's also, you know, something to be said for a pithy way of talking. >> and the problem is there is a statement they put on the wall, but they change it every day. >> yeah. >> they're responding to barack obama's mistakes instead of saying it's economy stupid or are you better off than you were four years ago, even if they had borrowed from reagan anded with that every da
at a time where there's a debate about ongoing health care in this country. mitt romney in a "60 minutes" interview was asked, going to an emergency room is an option for the uninsured. listen to that clip quickly. >> does the government have a responsibility to provide health care to the 50 million american whose don't have it today? >> well, we do provide care for people who don't have insurance. people -- if someone has a heart attack, they don't sit in their apartment and die. we pick them up in an ambulance and take them to the hospital, and give them care. and different states have different ways of providing for that care. >> for those people you were profiling there are in your film, was that their only option, that particular waiting room in that particular hospital and that level of care? >> for the vast majority of the community, it's the only place they know where to go. the safety net system, the last resorts in oakland and all over the country. there are a patchwork of clinics you can go to but for the most part, highland has the ability to the deal with factors like langua
to be a busy few days for mitt romney. he's going to be in ohio today, virginia tomorrow and heading into debate prep, as you know. the first presidential debate next wednesday, one week from today. >> a busy few days for jim acosta, too. >> thanks, jim. >> literally, rolling through ohio this morning. so cool. >>> we are now joined by rudy giuliani, of course, the former mayor of new york city. a former presidential candidate himself and important to note this morning also a support every supporter of mitt romney. i would like to greet you with the polls from the key swing states. ohio, florida and pennsylvania. >> this is someone who in 2004 sat, i think, in the cnn studio about 6:00 in the evening, and the exit polls had john kerry winning 66%. the day of the election. not cnn. fox, abc, nbc. i was on nbc with senator kennedy discussing with tom brokaw the cabinet john kerry was going to pick. so -- >> the polls are all wrong? a ten-point lead? >> the poll's not wrong. but a poll can be a sample of the 2008 election instead of a sample of the 2010 election, and i don't know what t
wednesday, and once we get into that stretch, there's going to it be debate after debate after debate. not at much time to get out on the campaign trail and that presents a problem for this campaign. >> all right, jim acosta. i know you're going to listen to romney's speech and bring us new sound bites as he begins speaking. jack nicklaus speaking and introducing the governor. jim acosta, thanks. see you later. >>> the romney campaign has k p company in ohio. president obama makes stops there with rails at two universities. bowling green and kent state university. coming up, kent state university in northeast ohio. student there are really excited. you see them here lining up for tickets to see the president. we'll talk to a student reporter at the bottom of the hour. >>> the outspoken and controversy leader of iran addresses the united nations general assembly later today. a live look for you at the united nations. the leader of the ivory coast speaking right now. the iranian president, mahmoud ahmadinejad is scheduled to speak in about two hours. western lead verse a history of wal
been before in these first couple of debates. >> steve: i think you're right. a couple of days ago when he was on "60 minutes," while it wasn't back to back, when you saw the president and then you saw mitt romney, i think a lot of people, because mitt romney has been demonized, it's like, wait a minute. i kind of like that guy. >> i think that's right. a lot of folks on twitter, i was tweeting about these dueling interviews. when mitt romney answered the question of what's your big idea? and he did not hesitate. he said, freedom. and now that we're seeing hillary out there yesterday, essentially proposing a global tax on the, quote, elite, mitt romney was exactly right to say our freedom is under attack at every level and my policies are going to be designed to lift everybody up and remind people that without liberty, all of this goes away. i thought that was a brilliant answer and framed the debate very well and he needs to now infuse that with a lot of more specifics, which i think you'll see. >> brian: they've got to use paul ryan that. would help. if he wanted to fully use his numb
